2 years ago I finally found Christ. And no, I didn’t find Him by reciting the sinner’s prayer. I’ve done that countless times in my life, but never felt saved. There was always this void in my life, even though people told me that Jesus fills that void. If I had Jesus by “inviting Him into my heart” why did I still feel empty and condemned? Why did I constantly cry out to God, begging Him to manifest Himself to me? I always had this yearning to be closer to God. I wanted to love and serve Him but didn’t know how. I’ve read countless of Spiritual books by well known pastors, but all it did was put me on a spiritual rollercoaster. My faith was in Crisis This all changed when someone from Second 8th week Ministries spoke to me about the Covenant of Christ. Even though I didn’t understand it all, I could see that the person had something I didn’t and I desired it. I could feel God’s Grace drawing faith from my heart as I submitted to Him. I was baptized in the Spirit and spoke in tongues. Since I came into Covenant God is a daily reality in my life. Through Apostolic governance I have received the truth of Christ that allows me to serve God acceptably. I now know how to function in my priesthood. I know what the true works of faith are and how these works function with the elements of the Gospel to effect change in the soul. The fruit of Christ is daily formed in my heart and through this God is glorified. I have laid down my imaginations about God and my private interpretation of Scripture and all the indoctrinations I have accumulated throughout my life and I have taken up the yoke of Christ’s knowledge, which has brought liberty to my soul. I now know that God is not there to change my circumstances according to my lusts, but that He is there to be loved and served according to the record of Christ so that He is able to form me into His image. What a blessing it is to finally know what it means to serve God in Spirit and in Truth.
